About Enhanced Relocation

Putting heart and connection into relocation


Our Story

Enhanced Relocation was born from an executive coach and a life coach swapping expat challenge stories. We have both lived and worked around the world, moved our families numerous times, learnt new languages and had to start over again and again, but the biggest challenges we had encountered were around hearts and minds.

Surely relocation could be done better with heart and connectedness to go alongside bricks & mortar.  When you move between locations, yes it is important to be comfortable physically, but there is a growing realisation that being comfortable mentally is just as important.

We have made it our mission to enhance the relocation experience – for everyone. In our increasingly global world we can do relocation better and enhance the outcome for employers, employees, families and the communities we find ourselves in.

Our current focus is in the areas of Coventry & Warwickshire, Solihull, Birmingham and other locations in the West Midlands, Worcestershire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire. We are passionate about enabling global mobility, if you share this interest with us, we would love to talk to you!
